This is the kind of stuff that inspires me the most. Satyre that's so simple it seems effortless (but we all know is never easy). Wanted to share it with my fellow writers:

I thought it would be cool if everyone would share one example of a parody article or video offsite that inspires them. --ShabiDOO 09:54, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

I loved Brass Eye. What seemed quite exaggerated back in the day now seems more and more realistic, as news outlets get ever more hysterical.

I have tried to convince some of the Americans on IRC to watch all of Brasseye and The Day Today. I think I failed. - B@NZai k!tten BANZAI! (Meow?)B 13:16, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
My brother would always cite this for parodies:

As for me, I've no idea, but one of my favourite TV moments is the first scene in the last episode of Bottom, "Carnival", in which the two protagonists look out of a window and describe a riot as it progresses below. To me it has the same mysterious charm as A bunch of aristocrats fucking. Awesome vid.--EveryOtherUsernameWasTaken(get dtf) 20:38, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
That was utter helarity. What TV show is that from? I want to see more.--ShabiDOO 21:29, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Okay I saw the credits and it says That mitchel and web look though it might be an add for a different show? --ShabiDOO 21:41, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes it's That Mitchell & Webb Look, one of the best sketch shows of our time. But I prefer another sketch that they did in The Mitchell & Webb Situation, in which Robert Webb plays a proofreader at a porno mag, and where David Mitchell plays a farmer who feels he is exploiting an unknown craft. Then there's That Mitchell & Webb Sound, a radio show with sketches about the trouble with owning a cash register shop or a doorbell shop.--EveryOtherUsernameWasTaken(get dtf) 22:03, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the links man. That is utter helarious stuff? --ShabiDOO 17:44, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
I've done two UnNews essentially based on this David Mitchell clip - B@NZai k!tten BANZAI! (Meow?)B 13:16, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for bumping this. What inspires me the most is reading French classics. It also amuses me to think about how well they could manage on Uncyclopedia. I already have five names of authors who wouldn't even need to change anything in the way they write to become Uncyclopedians - Rabelais, Diderot, Voltaire, Flaubert and Camus. It's a pity they are all dead. Diderot especially would appreciate our site, the first Encyclopedia being his idea.

Now, Internet. Have you heard of The Inconsequential? I found an article which is exactly of the type a featured UnBooks/UnScripts/UnNews of ours (choose the format you like) could be: [1] Happy reading! Anton (talk) 10:09, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Anton, now I know you're a Ruskie, I want to know: have you read the Slynx (Кысь) by Tolstoya? Really interesting odd little read! Leverage (talk) 10:31, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
"Little read"? It has as many chapters as letters in the Russian alphabet (33). I haven't read it yet, but I am interested in doing it. Anton (talk) 16:00, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
I have this book and was debating whether to read it (I have limited time for novels). If you recommend it I'll happily give it a go. We together and have a pyjama party and like talk all about Benedict and his boots and stuff! But it worth reading? --ShabiDOO 21:26, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Yeah man, I liked it. Basically, if you like the first chapter, I think you will like the book, if you don't, you won't. It's that thing of making a little world of its own, and you will know soon enough if it's a world you want to be part of. Leverage (talk) 06:22, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
I've just read the first chapter and have very mixed feelings about it. I might or might not continue. Anton (talk) 15:44, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Sums it up. The Onion is great, too, but I prefer their videos. --Nikau (talk) 14:12, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

I don't know if this all qualifies as parody in the strictest sense

But basically most of my early humor was molded by reading a mix of the Onion (in print in a newsbox, fuck a website) and David Sedaris books, along with watching Dave Chappelle's shit (starting with his show, then branching off to his stand-up once I was old enough to find it). I guess I read The Boondocks in the paper, too.
